The result of the proposal was move from Board of Education to Board of education, per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 07:07, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm proposing moving this article back to board of education. Although individual board of education titles are capitalized, it probably should not be capitalized when used by itself. --- RockMFR 17:06, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Probably reasonable; we tend against capitalization, and the distinction between specific Boards of Education and boards of education in general is worth preserving; save the redirect, however. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 19:14, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
  • This move seems pretty much uncontroversial, or am I missing something? —AldeBaer 17:14, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

I just wanted to say hello. My Wiki user ID is a word play on 'Board of education'! This is my first edit, so I want it to be on a special page that is close to me. --Bored of Education (talk) 02:18, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Colloquial term for corporal punishment in schoolEdit

Possible ImprovementsEdit

There could be a lot more information to help the reader to fully understand the historical context behind the formation and utility of the Board of Education. What might help is if there was a section that explained the Board of Education’s origination and where exactly it originated. There could also be a note on how successful the first Board of Education was and how its implementation drastically changed the modern school system. Then from there we could pick apart its evolution into the modern form that we see today (if there was a transformation at all). You could also analyze the different methods that have been used and are currently used to choose Board Members and the impact of that decision. Another question that could be addressed is why having a Board of Education is necessary and why it is beneficial to an area. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Dng21 (talkcontribs) 16:40, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Syntactical ErrorEdit

"The elected council determines the educational policy in a small regional area, such as a city, county, state, or province. Frequently, a board of directors power with a larger institution, such as a higher government's department of education. The name of such board is also often used to refer to the school system under such board's control." doesn't actually make any sense. The reference provided doesn't link to any viable resource, so the intended meaning is unclear. noisyoldwalrus 18:34, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
